June 1952-in a world of poodle skirts, convertibles, and rock and roll...
At seventeen, Isadora (Izzy) Twiss is forced to accept she has a growing problem, and no matter how much she wishes it away, it just gets bigger.  Having a baby out of wedlock is unacceptable. Those who do are shunned by their families and destined to lead a life of guilt and shame. 

She is forced to "disappear" to a remote island where a nun led home for unwed mothers lies, surrounded  by nothing but wilderness. There she meets other girls, all suffering from the same predicament. They bond together, sharing in the heartache that comes with carrying an illegitimate child. 

Izzy dreams that one day, no matter how far-fetched, love will be hers to have and hold. When a mysterious man arrives on the island, Izzy realizes her dream just might come true.

It was the same here only worse. The things that went on over here were criminal. This sounds really interesting as well. Completely different and important. The freaking Orbs have a lot to answer for , but they never will, and they never have.

Wow! What a gripping blurb! I've never been too into this stuff, but if Sal Mason's reading, it has to be good! Gosh, I just can't get over the blurb! SO GOOD! :D
I'm glad he isn't a complete jerk but I'm starting to question him

Well done. I have no idea how this is going to go wrong, but it is. Great to see this sort of thing being written about, so refreshing . I have to put in library for sure. Izzy I love that name from Fried Green Tomatoes... I don't think i ever cried as much over a film as that one :D

Really good stuff. I am so upset for her already, poor naive child! Third person is good.

I'm adding this to my reading list. I love the time period you choose and the subject is definitely something you don't find everyday. You've done an amazing job drawing me in already. ☺
